dollar* (»10,000). Thin new addition, 
together with the old factory site will 
not only make one of the greeteit fac- 
tories of its kind in the country, but 
will be an establishment equal In sire 
and modern facilities to moat manufac- 
turing companies in the state of In- 
diana, and the remarkable thing about 
it is, that this remarkable establishment 
is the peodoat of the foresight and akill 
of one of oar oAt* women. 

Ms Jam Walker at this time is tour-

LYNCHINGS 



Author and 
' Socialist, Telia His Hearers at tbe 
Broad Street Theater Other Coun- 
tries Treat Negroes Better Than 
U. S. Unless Keen Prejudices Are 
Ellntpitad, the Volcano on Which 
We An Bitting Will Crumble Soon 

Philadelphia, ' Pa.— Charles Edward 
Runaoll, author and Socialist, praises 
Prance because "the narrow, blind ha- 
tred of race prejudice is unknown 
there." Mr. Basse 11 spoke on :'Kace 
Prejudices" in tbe Broad Street The- 
atre under the auspices of tb'c Socinl- 
iat Literary Society. 

The speaker declared race prejudices 
were rampant ia this country and de- 
cried the tendency of the white race 
to consider itself superior to other races 
of tbe world, , 

This country, he said, was constant- 
ly bungling the Negro problem. He 
denounced Ifcr lynebings' in tbe south 
ecu states, nod added: , 

' '* Unless'-Tato presume r<- arc^eilmi 
natcd In this country the crust of thi 
volcano or which we are sitting will 
give way very soon." ''Frauee," eon 
tinned Mr. Russell, "has given the Nc 
gro true 'citirenship. In Franco liber 
ty. equality and fraternity are not hoi 
low rnockerii-s and empty dream. s In 
the Chamber' of Beputiea hiack men 
ait side by side .with whites. Fr 
has. never deigned tu draw a color line. 

"The Negroes rallied -10' Prance 
colors whoo she was threatened. Bi 
■ hat if we had a war here and needed 
our Negro rilijens! What if, when 
»e called for them, Ihey answered 
truthfully enough: 'You have oppressed 
u; you have killed, our men and women 
and children: you have shown us no 
justice in your, courts; you have tram 
pled us dawn. We will not light for 
ynul' Won bi not the Negro be justi- 
fied! But we know the Negro in bis 
loyalty will fight, for us, despite our 
great injustice to him. There is no. 
national safety for this country except 
in strict adherence to 'liberty-, equal- 
itv and fraternity.' ''

ise Honest Election 

DON'T BE FOOLED 



.On nest Tuesday, April 3, St. Louis 
srOl elect a mayor, tump t roller and 
fuurlceo nldcruieji who will servo for 
(OUT years. This will be the first tints 
a. mayor has been chosen umier the 
new city charter. The charter adopted 
ii 1914, made oil city officers appointa- 
tWe cscept the mnyor anil comptroller. 
Acse appaintmruts will be made by 
thai new mayor after the election.. The 
Bret in his hands will be grent, St. 
Isfuis- can ill afford to experiment at 
this time. 

-alayur Henry W. Kiel, the present 
uKnnibent. lias bad two years' experi- 
naee in trying out the new charter, 
tad getting it into working order. He 
hv* wade good. He has succeeded far 
beyond the expectations of nil students

like 



•slmiuist ration, and has inspired a spirit 
of progressiveness that is at tree I ing 
site attention of the entire country and 
sueans mucb in developing ihe business 
iktetasts of our city. 
f Seventeen of the eighteen pledges of 
£* platform four years ago hav£ been 
rtillv rtirried out during his progres- 
sive and business-like ndininistralinu. 
The platform upon which Mnyor Kiel 
now stands fur re election so thorough 
ly covers all issues of importance that 
the Democratic enrty in opposing him 
lias been compelled lo e,o tu the polls 
nith a platfurni minus sti issue. In i|ca- 
licrntiou. they prefaced their platform 
uith n declaration of loyalty <o the 
llag nnd proceeded to assail the Bj-pub- 
ifcan party and Mayor Kiel for omit- 
ting the clause. Their efforts only 
served as 'a boomerang. Their rharge 
that Xln.vor'Kiel un;l. the republican 
I'-aders were' nol true American ritirens 
has brought indignation from all' good, 
iitixensand the result is thai thousands 
of Dcniocrnls nrc rallying lo his sup-

By WUllam Q. Mathews 

The agitation nnd excitement under 
Ihe stress nnd strain of political strife 
applies more forcibly at this time, per- 
hapa, to the Negro race than is usually 
nccepted from the first flash of its ex- 

A serious reflection, however, will 
elenrly demonstrate the intrinsic Im- 
portance of the opportunity such con- 
ditions present to our own people. In 
this mnyornlty contest no Negro with 
» spatk: of persons! pride can afford lo 
olirlook tha peril he courts. In romaia. 
lag alia.f from his duty na a citiaen, 
in such a crisis. To ihe thoughtful 
Negro, il is not far back to the 
days when Ins nncestnrs were placed 
on the aticlinn b>rk at the old Court 
House: .when tyranny and the ersek

ry Kiel, when defiant of all op- 
position, taking all Ihe chances of do 
fenl and revenge that follows this tort 
of eoorngc, he publicly declared 
through tbe press that lie would veto 
any bill proposing Ihe segregation of 
the Negro thai came up fur his official 
action. 

This was Henry Kiel, the brave and 
fcarlrs- Mayor of StL'Louis, standing 
erect, in .find's sunlight, insisting that 
It must go out unmistakably to the 
world that Ihe superb precepts of the 
Constitution, declaring tlist "all men 
are created iTiunl," shnublnot he sob 
lied by placing the stain of segrega 
tion on the Negro. 

This is the time, if Ihere ever was 
one, that this reproach must be su 
Bwered by the Negro -wilh success. 
hvery Ncgru. knows that -Ihe under'

PLACE IT WHERE IT RIGHTFULLY BELONGS. 

It is really amusing to read the charges made by the Demo- 
cratic candidates, henchmen and the democratically inclined proas 
that the Republican! by failing to include a plank on Americanism 
in their platform, are subjecting themselves to being called pro- 
German. ' . ■ 

Mr, Lionberger. Mr. Connett and others aeera to forget that 
it is not the strained relations with Germany which haa just afford- 
ed a chance for someone to be charged with being un-American; 
these gentlemen do not have to reach across the Atlantic to find a 
loop hole wherein there may be an opportunity to cast reflections; 
they have only to search the record of the Democratic party from 
the time of its incipiency; to find-there, the most flagrant acta of 
un- Americanism that have ever disgraced a nation. 

Let Messrs. Lionberger and Connett and the editors of the 
democratic press disguise themselves as American Negroes and 
make a tour of the south; let them be subjected to the humiliation 
of riding in foul-smelling Jim Crow cars after having paid first- 
class fares: let them attempt to go in any southern eating house or 
restaurant to appease their hunger, and be driven out as though 
they were dogs; let them -face a Negro- hating southern judge or 
Justice and be sentenced* to a term in the chain-gang for daring to 
walk upon the sidewalk of a 1 main street in a southern cily; let them 
chance to stop off at Bowie, Texas, where their eyes will be greet 
ed by this sign, "Niggmr Don't Lit Thm San Go Down On Yoa;' 
let them gaze upon the ruthless act of a law-breaking mob, in its 
hellish pastime of burning a helpless Negro man of woman, be- 
cause of some minor act of indiscretion: we say, let them in the 
disguise of an American Negro witness these things, and then let 
them place the charge of on - Ammricanttm where it rightfully be-

We have asked your indulgence of the above editorial in order 
that you may realize the close relation that wax has, with an inter- 
nal race question. 

America has her race question which involves not only the re- 
lations between the whites and colored in the southern states; but 
which confronts America in the Philippines, in Cuba, in Porto hico 
and in her other island possessions. In-other aspects the race 
question is, and will be one of the perennial and absorbing problems 
in the development of every country wherein it exists. 

For the consideration, not to aay settlement, of a question so 
complicated and so involved in prejudice and passion and wrong, 
no light or teaching that history affords should be neglected. 

These questions were first faced by the Spaniards, and in the 
four hundred years' history of Spanish America there is a wealth 
of human experience in the contact of races that may be drawn 
upon for warning or instruction or possibly for reassurance.

A FULL RESPONSIBILITY. 

^Prior to the recent primaries we advised the people of this 
city to vote for Mayor Henry W. Kiel as the choice of the Republi- 
can party of St. Louis, for mayor at the coming election next 
Tuesday. Subaeqaent to the primaries, we acknowleged our pleas- 
ure at the results and congratulated the voters upon their wise and 
splendid choice. ' We also tofd the colored people of this city that 
we fully realised the responsibility that we were taking upon our- 
selves by-advising them to vote for Mr. Kiel. 

We are glad of. the opportunity to again call the attention of 
the voters to a more important election (so far as the Negro is 
concerned) which is to take place next Tuesday, April M; this 
time it will be a Republican who has made a good mayor and. one 
who has done more for the Negroes of this city than any of his 
predecessors, and more than we could ever have the slightest hope 
of receiving from a Democratic. The Democratic party is waiting 
its opportunity to take from our .people their political and civil 
rights. You are able to see the contrast, you should act according. 

Rmmmmbmr, the voting is an expression of character. He ism 
ngrateful man who will smite the hand that feeds him:

HEEP THE LESSON OF RUSSIA.-O. AMERICA ! 

"The duty to die for one's country should be predicated upon 
the right -to live in, one's country under equal .laws and without 
degrading discriminations." 

The above .quotation of the Hon. Oscar Straus, former Ambas- 
,sador to Turkey and former Secretary of Commerce and Laber in 
Cabinet of ex-President Roosevelt, was heartily endorsed by Count 
Beakeodorf, the Russian Ambassador in London during a recent 
interview between these two great men. The subject of the inter- 
view was principally the condition of the Jewish subjects of Russia 
and was brought about by the fact that Jews were taking their 
places' in the present great European, struggle on the side of their 
oppressors, the Russians. 

When one has read the interview mentioned above, he cannot 
keep the mind from, turning to America, and while reports have it 
that America was the first to recognize and congratulate the new 
repablic o( Rtmia. the reader will wonder , at the plight of the 
Negroes in America who are but half freje and who have stood 
shoulder to shoulder with the Americans ih all of her wars. Sure- 
ly there must be a strain of sympathy in/the heart of every Negro 
for the Jewish people and if it takes a great war to give a race of 
people their freedom, aa has been the case of the Jews in Russia, 
then the American Negro cannot but yearn for war. 

The following editorial from the Globe Democrat of March 20 
1917, is well worth reading:

J'. L. Watson, 'Pastor 



Boston, Mass., March 25, 1917. 
An affectionate tribute to the late 
Rev. Caasius M. C. Mason from one of 
his parishioners. 

entered into life on the morning of 
Wednesday, March 21st, 1017, Rev. Cas- 
aiua M. Clay Mason, for 39 years rector 
of All Saints Episcopal Church in the 
city of St. Louis. 

Grant him Thine eternal rest, O Lord, 
and let perpetual light shine upon him. 
The sudden calling away— almost with- 
out warning— in the midst of his labors 
of this beloved priest of the church was 
a profonnd stock to the whole com. 
munity, and to the members of his con- 
gregation comes as a personal bereave, 
ment. For to us he was not only our 
rector, but a courteous, kindly Christian 
gentleman and friend. His zeal and 
affection for all the work of the- parish 
and ita beat interests, were as. sincere 
and rffeetive u human devotion and 
srlf-ascrlAce coald make tbem. His lov- 
ing heart kept him near\to humanity, 
and his '' reverent spirit communed 
with God." In ehafacter hK waa mas- 
terful, yet truly priestly, and full of 
strenuous vitality. And though he now 
"rests from his labors.'' he has left an 
abiding memorial 'of his many virtues. 
And in bis passing it may be truly 
said of him, "He being dead,' yet 
spemketh." ' 

It is said that the light- of certain 
■tars is still reflected on the earth, after 
the stsrs the as elves have passed from 
the firmament; so we may hope thai it 
will be with the influence of tbisgra 
shall no longer see him 
face- to face, but the world hi better 
he lived, and his Influence will 
be unconsciously felt by al] who knew 
and loved him. But how we shall miss 
him! Fi/r nearly forty veers be has 
freely and faithfully rendered his serv 
ice to the pariah "of All Saints.- Very 
rarely was he sbaent from hia aecus- 
e chancel. Seldom 



tar's cold, and summer's heat, In fair 
wsathar M foul, we found him there 
steadfast in the faith and quietly eam' 
est in hit. convictions of truth and flnty. 
Faithful, devout, gentle, patient, hope- 
ful, loving true! 

Words are at best a poor vehicle to 
exprsaa onr appreciation of a noble life. 
It soema almost an impertinence to 
t»y, "Well dtrnt, good and faithful 
■arrant of Christ," when ha whom we 
so rncoursge has passed beyond the 
veil, and heard the eneomlom from,* 
greater lips than ours. 

Still it is on* privilege to bear record 
of hia work; for that uvea after him. 
Ho loved trnth and rignteoosnesa with. 
thf. una ardor with which he'BaMd. 
falseness and baseness. He was an on- 
wavering friend, aa thoughtful, u gen- 
erous, and as appreciative of Httle kind- 
nesses aa of great ones. .Mindful of hia- 
caliing aa a priest of the ehnreh, he- 
never lost an opportunity to exercise his 
office and ministry among the lick and 
suffering. His religions life waa 
marked by a cheerfulness of spirit and' 
simplicity of faith, -accompanied by a 
flrmneaa of conviction, and franknets.of 
atowal which attracted all who knew' 
him, and commanded their sincere re- 
spect. For, after all, a consecrated- 
Christian life, -ii "earth's bcit witneu 
to the life divine." He bas won that 
rest which remaineth for the people of 
Ood. -Most gently tbe summons came- 
at the last, and bis peaceful spirit 
passed from inffering to still mare per- •* 
feet peace. 

"The al'rife Is o'er, the battle.done; ■ 
The victory of life is won; 
The song of triumph bas begun."

they Imply, there 
would Deter hove

Dor an - aching,

tear on the face 
ot an; human be- 
lie. 

The Fact of Sin. 
The coo science 
bear* Mil; 
that man la a 
ner. The highest 
p h I 1 o a o 1 
heart witness and 
i h-.' Word of God fully confirms the 
L wltnest of cetwdencB, philosophy and 
experience, that man If a sinner. 
The Nature of Sin, 
It waa a very simple thing which 
man did.. There wat nothing evil In 
the tree of which he did eat, (or God 
bad declared that tbla tree, together 
with all other* In the garden, waa- very 
food. It waa Jnat one step that he 
took, bat It waa like a atep over a 
precipice. It needed no second atep, 
A very simple thing, but In eating he 
donbt* Ood'a love, for he had been as- 
anred of- God'a love, he would ha 
beta assured that tha commands of 
God were for Ma hlgheat good. Bat 
doubting Ood'a lave, be acta apart 
from God. choosing his own way rath- 
er than Ood'a, and so becomes, a .tin- 
ner. Hit own way waa not necessarily 
an evil way, as man calls evil, but 
waa not God'a, and therefore sin came 
in. Secondly, In eating he doubts 
Sod's word. Thlt Is necessarily the 
second step, for be. who doabta God's 
love will doubt Sod's word, and doautt- 
Ing God's word, he 'bets contrary W 
God and becomes criminal. Sin Is not 
' merely the disease of which some 
Umentalltts speak, bat sin Is a crime. 
carrying a penally which must be met 
Thirdly, in eating, be disputes God's 
authority. And so he acta In spite of 
, God. and thereby becomes a rebel and 
enemy. This. then. Is the nature of 
slo. It makes tbe oue whom It touches 
to be not only a sinner bat a criminal. 
guilty before the bar of God's Justice, 
and so enemy against. God'a govern- 
meat. Tbe tinner, then. Is one who 
would overthrow God and place him- 
self on the throne of tbe universe. 
The Results sir Sin. 
Tbe first result of sin la shame, 
which lateen wben.they strive to bide 
their nakedness with the aprona of 
fig-leaves,. . These aprona Speak Of 
their attempt.to clothe themselves vritb 
a righteousness which, will make them 
comfortable In the pretence of eacb 
Other, a aelf-rlibteouaoett adopted to 
hide their 'Mute 

Thlt it followed, by .separation from 
:God, for when God cornea upon the 
'tcene, they bide themselvea among the 
trees of the tardea. ' 

It I*' to be noted that the separation 
Is formed by man and not by God. 
These are the first results of sin: 
ahame. self-rlgbteontnese, separation 
from God. 

God's Treatment of tbe tinner. 
First, he seeks him. In seeking. 
God reveals his own love for man and 
ales the character at man, for when 
he flnda hi in he says: "I beard tby 
voice and was afraid became I was 
naked." Sal tbla .Is a lie. for man 
was naked before and unafraid. Be

tcene, and that because he la a sinner 
and a criminal and the enemy of God. 
The seeking of God proves man to be 
morally wrong, for be la a coward. st- 1

ty-first verse, tod It will be noted thai 
this provision la made by God;, not 
by God and man. It Is. therefore, all 
of grace. Further, It Is made by sac-

out the shedding of blood there Is 'no

for salvation by blood, look not U.t the 
salvation spoken of In tbe Scripture*. 
for the crimson mark of the blood' ot

of Holy Writ, 

Lastly, this provtrion la made

LESSON FOR APRIL 1 



JESUS GIVES SIGHT TO BLIND. 

LKSHOS TEXT— John »:1-U. JS-H. (Bead 
«tlra MUM] 

aOLOEK TEXT'-I am 
world.— Jobs ■*, . 

Thin, another of the stent which 
Jetua performed, It recorded only 
John. It probably occurred In Octo- 
ber, all months before the crucifixion, 
while Jesus waa attending the Feast 
of the Tabernacles. There ar? -"- 
other cases of blindness recorded 
having been cured. Look* them up. 

I. The Caaa (vr. 1-4). It was abno 
Jutely hopeless. No human skill could 
touch It, but Jesus "passed by. 
that changed everything. What men 
cannot do Jesus can. Jesus In passing 
today, and we may expect things quite 
as wonderful to happen (John 14; 12) 
This blind man Illustrates tbe unsaved 
tinner (I Cor. 2:14). He never bad 
teen. He was beyond human help (v. 
32). He had doubtless given up all 
hope of seeing. He vat without sym- 
pathy, suspected and despised (vr. 2, 
Bt). . Poor— be waa a beggar. - He it 
also a type of the nation of Israel 
(Rev. 3:17). We. moat not attempt to 
explain all sickness (v. 3). God fre- 
quently uses It for the advancement 
of his klniitlom (John 11:4). Jeans 
hot only ]':.■—■■! by but he "saw." The 
feeling of the crowd Wat that of curi- 
osity aud contempt Hit feeling waa 
that of compassion (vv. 2, 4 and 6). 
Sick nets sometimes manifests God's 
sustaining grace (II Cor. 12:8-10). It 
la duubticwi true that n large percent- 
age of sickness la the direct result of 
sin (John 5:14; Mk. 2:0; Acta 12:23), 
■onset of course, indirectly (Job 23:14- 

II. The Cure (vr, Ml). The word 
fmusl" in verse four la a strong one. 
The, time fur us to do on*- work ia 
"now," This word "must" carries -with 
It the idea of a divine imperative, and 
the reason for that Imperatlveneaa Is 
the approaching "night" Night la 
coming fast when no man can w^rk. 
Notice tbe works we are to do are not 
our own, but "the works of Mm that 
■eat me." Compare carefully verses 
two and four, and see that Jeans con- 
sidered delivering the man from evil 
far more' Important ihaa specnletina; 
about tbe origin of hit complaint Too> 
much time \jt spent In Investigation. 
Let us have more of action. The 
means used in thlt cure were clay and 
spittle. The miracle was performed In 
plain view of all who- might see. The 
man did not ask Jess* to help him, bat 
Jesas bad gone where he was (v. 6). 
His words, !*Qo wash." were a test of 
the mans faith; (it Kings B:10-14), 
snd'hii. part 1q The rtuiuurtlun waa a 
testimony that Ifwaa Chriat who 
worked tbe cure. The nae of the 
material means in thlt ceremony made 
the man more willing to. go and waah. 
It gave him something to do, and doing 
la always an end to faith. Slloam 
means "sent," snd was a type of Jesus 
himself (v. 4; John 10:36; Horn. 8:3; 
Gal 4.4). If we wish to receive sight 
for our blind eyes, we should go to 
him and buthe (John 3:12). \ 

lit Tha Controversy (v, 12 to end of 
Chapter). This controversy gave op- 
portunity for testimony, is we 
already seen,* first of all Opoo the part 
of Ifeej man whose testimony whs pro- 
Jve. At first he "merely spoke of 
the fact He was not acquainted with 
i. for be eslls him "The man 
called Jesus." . Later en he la moved 
all him a "prupbf t" He Is a 
prophet (t. IT), and later Hill he 
recognises him. as "The Son of God" 
35-.1S). This controversy estab- 
lished beyond question the fsct of tbe 
care. It brought oat tbe -deity of 
Christ (v. 33). The man was eicoro- 
nauulcaled. but for that matter he was 
already ouralde because of his physical 
Infirmity, but, best, .if alt be became 
truly Christ's disciple, - .." 

IV. Comments. This lesson with lis 
Vivid. coulnuta of belief and unbelief 
gives us a ' wonderful opportunity to 
urge upon pupils a decision to live the 
Christian Ufa, Haa Christ opened the 
eyes of onr scholars Io the love of 
God, to Ibe awfulhesa of sin, to tbe 
need of a Savior, our divine Leader 
and. Brother! Urge them; In the class 
and- (int. to be as outspoken and cour- 
ageous for, Christ a* was this maa who 
had never before perhaps teen or 
beard of Jeans, and whose gratitude tt 
once railed forth this) wonderful con- 
fession.

The American 
Theatre Prices 



The people will resent the price* 

barged at the American Theatre wan 

the Smart Set mikes their second ap. 

in" there Sunday. Not becnu-r 

they do not admire and appreciate tta 

Colored jierformers, but because of the 

iscriminntion in rhi- prices charged to 

ie white and the Colored patrons. 

It was .pointed out last week bo* 

thai the white patrons enjoyed the brat 

for less money, while tha Color, d 

pnlnan (because of their admiratina for 

Colored performers) were charge J 

higher prieen for cheaper seats. 

This is in injustice that tha atagnc* 

I nut compelled to submit, to. It is 

so an injustiee lo the performen. If 

gh prices are neresaary on account .if 

large troupe, n raise in prices should 

ply lu ail seats alike.
